For Your Viewing Pleasure: Take 59

I’ve got a great compilation of training videos from the past week that I think you’ll really like (I do anyways). Before you start making your through though, first make sure to check out my post yesterday about, as well as the Good Reads from the weekend. I’m in the process of uploading a whole bunch of older videos, so bear with me on that. You can subscribe to my You Tube page to stay updated on that (button is to the right of this page). Now for the videos. They really speak for themselves so I don’t need [...]


New Happenings on

I don’t talk a whole lot here on my blog about the work I do for, but things have really been picking up on the site in the past couple months and I have a lot more readers since I switched over to my new site at the end of the summer so I wanted to bring it to your attention in case you are not already a member. Back in July, I told you that I became the assistant editor of the site. In that time, we have increased the content to where we are consistently posting at [...]


Good Reads for the Week: 11/26/2011

In spite of Thanksgiving and all the ensuing festivities, there were still a bunch of awesome fitness reads this week. I’m posting this during halftime of the Bama-Auburn game (I’m hoping for a LSU-Bama rematch for the National Championship) so rather than babble I’m just get right into it. Here are a few posts you may have missed during the week. Single Leg Squat Stand Work the Entire Back Side of the Body at Once For Your Viewing Pleasure: Take 58 Happy Thanksgiving Y’all And now for the best of the rest. Enjoy! […]


Single Leg Squat Stand

Several months ago I posted several videos of myself doing rear foot elevated split squats with my back leg on funky Single Leg Squat Stand . I got a bunch of inquiries about what it was and where people could get it, but I sort of evaded the questions because it actually wasn’t available to the public yet. We have been testing them for a while and giving feedback on how to improve them, and now they are available for purchase from Perform Better. You can check them out HERE. […]


Happy Thanksgiving Y’all

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I just wanted to make a quick post and thank all of you that have been loyal supporters of my site. Whether it’s just coming to read, leaving comments, signing up for my free newsletter (hint, hint if you don’t already), or sending me e-mails and messages, it all means a lot. I love writing and sharing ideas, but without your support, I couldn’t justify putting in the considerable time I do into making the site what it is, so without y’all (I’m in Florida right now and really digging the whole Southern thing), none [...]


Work the Entire Back Side of the Body at Once: Pullup-Inverted Row-Hip Thruster Combo

If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time then you know I’m a huge fan of bodyweight exercises. I’m also a big into training the back side of the body (i.e. the posterior chain). I love pullups, inverted rows, and anything that goes after the glutes and hamstrings. Last but certainly not least, I like exercise economy, meaning I exercises that kill a whole bunch of birds with one stone. With that in mind, here is a pretty sweet exercise I’ve been toying around with. As is typical of me, I have no clue what to call, [...]


For Your Viewing Pleasure: Take 58

Unless you’re reading this within 15 seconds of me posting it, I’m on my way down to sunny Florida or am there already. I decided on Saturday to take a last minute trip with my mom and enjoy some warmer weather over the Thanksgiving holiday. I’m really looking forward to it. I don’t want to be compiling a bunch of videos while I’m away, but I also didn’t want to leave you hanging this week, so I decided to post this week’s For Your Viewing Pleasure a few days early. It’s still an awesome list, and combined with Good Reads [...]


Good Reads For the Week: 11/19/2011

Another week is in the books, and that means it’s time for another Good Reads. This is a great list and I think you’ll really enjoy it. Before we get to the articles, I want to remind you to check out and subscribe to my You Tube channel. I’ve been doing a lot of filming the past two weeks and have begun uploading some of it. There’s a bunch of new videos up, and close to ten more on the way. Also, if you aren’t following me on Twitter (@benbruno1), please do so. I’ve finally figured it out a little [...]

9 Random Training Tips

I had a new article put up on T-Nation today called 9 Random Training Tips. Bet you can’t guess what it’s about it? First one to guess gets a massive internet high 5. Better yet, make it a bro pound.

Also, I want to remind you that there are only two days left to get Joe Dowdell’s Peak Diet and Training Seminar DVD before the price goes up $100 bucks and you miss out on all the [...]
